NOLAN & VAN BRAMER TOUR QUEENS SCHOOLS


WITH CHANCELLOR-DESIGNATE BLACK

On Wednesday, December 1st Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan, Council Member


Jimmy Van Bramer and New York City School Chancellor-Designate Cathie Black
toured two local schools in Western Queens. The tour consisted of visits to P.S. 111
Jacob Blackwell and P.S. 78 Robert F. Wagner Jr. School in Long Island City. At each
school the Chancellor-Designate had an opportunity to chat with staff and visit
classrooms to see first hand the wonderful work happening at each school.
Assemblywoman Nolan, who is also the State Assembly’s Education Chair and Council
Member Van Bramer who represents the district in which the schools are located joined
the Chancellor-Designate in the tour.

“I enjoyed meeting with Cathie Black; we were able to visit two Title 1 schools with
excellent principals and terrific kids,” said Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan. “I know
that we will face some education challenges down the road but I appreciate the
opportunity to meet with the new Chancellor. It was a good visit.”

“Today I had the opportunity to meet Cathie Black and tour two of the schools in my
district with her and Assemblywoman Nolan,” said Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer.
“Making sure that all children are afforded every opportunity to learn and succeed in our
public schools is priority number one and I expect to work with the incoming Chancellor
to make that promise a reality.”
